Each page begins with "That's not my monkey" and reads;
It's ears are too soft
It's tail is too velvety
It's feet are too smooth
It's eyebrows are too hairy
It's tongue is too fuzzy
The final page reads " THAT's my monkey! It's tummy is so fluffy.
Each page has a corresponding texture for your child to discover.
My son loves to point out the textured section on each page and eagerly awaits my praise and claps his hands. I treasure our reading time together each day and have in excess of 10 Usborne touchy-feely books and still enjoy each one!
I hope this review was helpful.
As they started growing, they've been enjoying these even more and keep looking for their favourite page in each of them to scratch or touch the different textures although it's true that some adjectives become a bit repetitive across the books but the drawing cover for that.
They are also very solid books with thick pages compared to other ones out there as my children haven't managed to completely tear them apart doing their favourite 'chew on everything everything' activity.
The multi sensory approach along with a simple concept of looking through drawings with bright colours and simple make this a very lovely book that grows with your child as they start learning more words and looking for the right animal (see note at the end).
To sum-up, these books are absolutely brilliant so please don't hesitate.
Note/Spoiler alert: The animal you're looking for is on the last page :)
My daughter squeals with excitement when we read That's not my puppy...
It's a very short book (I think there are only five monkeys, and one's on the front cover) which means it's good for playing rather than bedtime.
The only thing some people might find weird is that the monkey with the hairy eyebrows has vague similarities to both Bernard Ingham and Leonid Brezhnev, but for me, that just makes it better.
The design and touchy-feely bits are fun, but the baby reckons that That's Not My Robot, That's Not My Dinosaur, That's Not My Dragon all have a more interesting range of textures.
Overall a great starter book for a young baby.
